You had your time! Floyd Mayweather no longer interested in Manny Pacquiao fight now that 'Pac Man's' career has declined

Strike while the iron is hot!

Remember all that hullabaloo about a potential "super fight" between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao?

Well, the fight isn't as super as it once was, now that "Pac Man" has dropped two straight bouts, including a devastating sixth-round knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez last December (relive the insanity here). Chalk that up to opportunity lost, according to Mayweather.

"Money" breaks it down for Fight Hype.

"Now you got Pacquiao talking about, 'You know what? I'm ready to take the tests now.' Well you could have took the tests a long time ago, you know. His career has declined; now it's like, 'Okay, I'll do whatever now so I can get that big payday. It don't matter. I'll do whatever I got to do now.' It's like, well, you had your time, you know. I mean, you had your time. Now Canelo is in that spot and now Canelo said, 'I'll do whatever it takes,' so now we're fighting."

See the "tests" that cock-blocked their super fight right here.

If Pacquiao has any chance of getting back into the thick of things, he'll need a dominant performance in his return fight against Brandon Rio in Macao (details here). Meanwhile, Mayweather will try to remain undefeated against top contender Saul "Canelo" Alvarez later this fall (more on that here).

Anyone think this fight gets back on the table if both boxers continue to win?
